Changes in Matter - 5th Grade
Transcript of Changes in Matter - 5th Grade
By: Mr. Begoyan
Physical changes occur when
substance is formed.
Melting ice, boiling and freezing water, tearing paper are all examples of physical changes.
Chemical changes occur when one or more new substances are produced. We call them
Combining certain elements and compounds together, or applying heat to some compounds can produce new substances.
Difficult to reverse (sometime impossible).
Some substances are more likely to undergo chemical changes than others.
Reactivity measures how likely (and how violent) a chemical reaction is likely to occur.
Using Chemical Reactions
At the end of a chemical reaction, you will often find a new substance.
Some compounds can only be obtained through chemical reactions.
Reacting sodium and chlorine results in table salt.
Some elements and compounds can undergo a special chemical reaction:
During combustion, heat and light is produced.
Different chemicals will produce different colors as they combust.
Conservation of Matter
Physical and chemical changes may cause matter to look and behave differently, but the amount of matter never changes (you don't create or lose matter).
This is called the
"Law of Conservation of Matter"
1. What is the difference between a physical and chemical change?
2. What is reactivity?
3. What are some uses for chemical reactions?
4. Describe combustibility.
5. What does the "Law of Conservation of Matter" say?
